Feminist Art Evolution of Woman by Maggie Vlazny
“Evolution of A Woman by Maggie Vlazny” is an image so full of vitality and hope, that I could not resist it. “Our mouths and bodies speak for us in a new language, as the trees shake loose a rain of petals that stick to our slickness like skins we will wear forever. And just like that, I am changed.”
— Libba Bray (The Sweet Far Thing)”
Mandy Oversees A New Recruit’s Haircut by Margaret Bryant
The whole Mandy series by Margaret Bryant, are images that are filled with fun, yet each one has a poignant and strong message. I love the whole take -off of Barbie who is being given a whole new persona in this wonderful series. Here, “Mandy watches as a new recruit to the Inner Circle of Mandytude recieves her initation buzzcut. Mandy does not believe that hair makes the woman.”
Alone by Anita Inverarity
“Alone” by Anita Inverarity, is a poignant view into a woman coming to terms with disability. Part of the ‘Style Stealer’ series, Anita illustrates a range of emotions so beautifully. This one moves me to tears.
To the light… by m-mission
“To The Light” by m mission takes us on an abstarct journey from darkness to light. I love the way she uses her precious gems to describe so well a whole range of emotion. here, it is a depiction of ‘fragments of a woman’.
Unspoken by Lacey Scarbro
“Unspoken” by Lacey Scarbro is a lithograph on bright white rag paper.This image portrays the deep, dark, haunting feeling that comes with the inability to free what is secretly kept inside the soul. The dramatic black and white abstract really does convey the whole range of feelings of not being able to express yourself.
I Can Take Care of Myself by Katz Karma
A feminist, fun-filled Red Riding Hood which I could not resist. I just love her attitude and the strong message that accompanies it.
The poetry featured this week is moving, emotional and strong. I love every one so much.
Congratulations to you all, and thank you for submitting such wonderful work to Pink Panther.
